The Mansplaining of Music Theory

mansplained:

I was sitting in a pool hall trying to work on my theory assignment (long story), and some guy that had I never met and had no desire to meet walked up to the table where I was working. “Ohh,” he said, “you’re working on music? Cool. I play guitar. What are you doing?” It was pretty obvious that he had no idea what I was doing, because one only had to look at what I was writing to see what I was working on, so I said dryly, “I’m writing a fourth species invertable counterpoint.” At this point, he should’ve just shut up and walked away, but instead, he pointed to a C over which there was an E and said, “This is a one chord. If you add a G over it, you have the full chord.” Except fuck you, it’s not because it depends on what key you’re in, IF you are in a key, IF you are even using common practice period, but thanks for re-explaining to me something that I learned in middle school.

Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life. Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.  In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and ‪#‎stopracism‬.” -Roukaya Mabizari
